Reminder: Colorado 14er Event Sunday

Amateur radio operators from around Colorado will be climbing many of
Colorado's 14,000-foot mountains to set up amateur radio stations,
communicating with other radio amateurs across the state and around the
world. Join in the fun Sunday, August 15th and see how many of the mountaintop
stations you can contact. The prime operating hours are from approximately
900 to 1200 local time (1500 to 1800 UTC), but activity may occur at other
during the day. On VHF, most mountaintop stations will be running low power
handheld radios. Stations running high power need to keep in mind that they
can interfere with stations they cannot hear.

This event is intended to spur increased activity in all parts of Colorado
and neighboring states. Most stations will be on VHF and higher bands, taking
advantage of their mountaintop location to obtain longer distance contacts.
Some stations operate on the HF bands, working amateur radio operators across
the country and around the world. You don't have to be on a 14er to
participate, so check out the general operating guidelines for more
